Conington is home to Flying Club Conington, to which G-BOZI (PA-28 Warrior II), G-BGKU (PA-28 Arrow III), G-BGAE (C152) and G-GCCL (Duchess) belong. These aircraft have featured in our in-house developments, including the award-winning PA-28R Arrow III and recently released PA-28-161 Warrior II, so we thought it was about time to bring a high-quality rendition of the airfield to Flight Simulator X and Prepar3D.

Conington, otherwise known as Peterborough Business Airport (ICAO: EGSF) is a privately owned airfield located in the UK county of Cambridgeshire, six miles south of Peterborough and twenty miles north-west of Cambridge. The airfield started life as RAF Glatton, built in 1942 and used by the USAF B-17 Flying Fortress bombers throughout WWII. The airfield was mothballed by the RAF after the USAF left at the end of WWII,but it saw activity again with GA flying from the 1970s onwards until Flying Club Conington took over in 2000.

The airfield is equipped with a licensed 987-metre asphalt runway (10/28) with a 100m overshoot and an unlicensed 800-metre concrete runway. JET A-1 and AVGAS fuel, a hard apron area and grass area for helicopter operations provide an excellent base for your GA fleet.
